Unigroup is currently working on filling our 1995 meeting schedule.
We currently have the following topics in mind:

	- NFS
	- Domain Name System (DNS)
	- Sendmail
	- NIS+
	- Firewalls & Security
	- Privacy and Encryption (including PGP)
	- Multimedia Enhanced EMail - MIME/Metamail
	- Unix Administration Tools: crash & fsdb

PLEASE let us know if you:

	- Can give us a presentation on one of these topics
	- Know of a speaker for one of the these topics
	- Have another topic you think we should address
	- Can help us plan one or more meetings - be a meeting coordinator.



A few months ago, the publisher of New York Unix Magazine informed us that the
magazine was "going on hold."  (That's why you havn't seen an issue lately).

Given this situation, we are currently discussing various ways of re-starting
a Unigroup Newsletter.  The two biggest problems to overcome are:

	a) Volunteers to see that it gets out
	b) Content material

If you have any ideas or can help us restart our newsletter, please make them
known at our meetings and/or let us know by EMail.  If you know anyone who
has experience in sending out a newsletter, we can use some good advice
(and the name of a reliable full service print shop).


I hope to see you all at Unigroup's January 1995 meeting...

-Rob Weiner
 Unigroup Executive Director
